Next Wednesday 18 November, Sydney bookstore gleebooks, in Glebe, will be hosting a conversation between former High Court justice Michael Kirby and David Kinley, chair in human rights law at the University of Sydney Faculty of Law and author of Civilising Globalisation: Human Rights and the Global Economy.

Kirby and Kinley will be discussing how economic globalisation and human rights have the power to improve and enrich individuals and communities, but also how differences in their respective institutions, methods, practices and goals can lead to detrimental clashes as well as beneficial synergies.

In his book, Kinley analyses how human rights intersect with the trade, aid and commercial dimensions of global economic relations, taking the view that, while the global economy is a vitally important civilising instrument, it itself requires civilising according to human rights standards.

He outlines the intellectual, policy and practical frameworks for ensuring that the global economy advances the ends of human rights, argues for better exploitation of the global economy's capacity to distribute as well as create wealth, and proposes mechanisms by which to minimise and manage the socially debilitating effects of its market failures and financial meltdowns.

Date: 6.30 for 7pm Wednesday 18 November

Venue: gleebooks, 49 Glebe Point Rd, Glebe

Cost: $10 ($7 concession)

To book call gleebooks on 02 9660 2333
